Christmas For Children: Spreading Holiday Cheer to Those in Need

Carolinas Key Club members join Santa Claus to bring joy to the residents of Boys and Girls Homes.

Carolinas Key Club members join Santa Claus to bring joy to the residents of Boys and Girls Homes.

The Boys and Girls Homes of Lake Waccamaw, North Carolina provide a safe haven for young people who have been removed from their homes due to abuse or neglect, offering temporary placements for children in crisis. Many children in the cottages of Lake Waccamaw have been physically, mentally, or sexually abused. Some come from homes where parents suffer from drug addiction or mental illness and they lack even the bare necessities for a healthy life. The Boys and Girls Homes acts as a refuge from these situations and advocates for children by way of adoption services. As the District Project of the Carolinas, Key Club members have partnered with the Boys and Girls Homes to support the programs, facilities, and missions at Lake Waccamaw.

With Christmas drawing closer, we picture decorated trees, glowing strings of lights, gingerbread houses, and an abundance of gifts. Unfortunately, many children at the Boys and Girls Homes have never experienced the warmth and cheer we are all blessed with feeling during the holiday season. Some residents have never celebrated the holidays or received a Christmas gift at all. However, we have the ability to make this year’s Christmas memorable for the children at Lake Waccamaw. If each Carolinas Key Club would send just $100.00 to the Christmas for Children campaign, we could buy clothes, sports equipment, toys, and computers for each cottage. We could additionally purchase learning aids for every child in the Boys and Girls Homes. There isn’t a more meaningful way to share the joy of the Christmas season than becoming part of such an effort.

Stories of harm, despair, and abuse are not the exceptions at the Boys and Girls Homes. These stories are common and represent the lives of so many. We ask for your donations and thoughts to bring Christmas and aid to these incredible boys and girls. Please send your contributions from clubs, foundations, businesses or personal funds to the address below. All contributions must be received by December 10, 2013.

From the Carolinas District of Key Club, thank you in advance for your help with the Christmas for Children campaign. Any donation is greatly appreciated, large or small, but we ask that you help as you are able. The impact of this campaign will truly be felt if we can meet 100% of the need at the Boys and Girls Homes this Christmas season.

Checks can be made payable to Boys and Girls Homes

Fall into service with Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF

Joshua Criscoe

Carolinas - Scare up some funds and fun this Halloween by participating in Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF. It’s a great opportunity to collect donations instead of candy or to bring club members together for a fabulous event or party. All money collected by Kiwanis-family members through Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF will once again support The Eliminate Project and help save moms and babies.

Did you know? A proud participant in Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF since 1994, Key Club has raised more than US$6 million for child survival and development programs around the world—from efforts to eliminate iodine deficiency disorder to HIV/AIDS initiatives in Kenya and Swaziland. Starting in 2012 Key Club joined other Kiwanis Service Leadership Programs to Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF to raise money for The Eliminate Project.

You could raise funds door-to-door, host a trunk-or-treat, zombie walk, horror fest, pumpkin smash, “Twilight” dance, haunted house or even an old-fashioned pumpkin pie baking (or eating) contest…or come up with your own idea!


The process is easy! You can participate in five simple steps:

  1. Decide with your club what kind of fundraiser you’ll do.
  2. Order your collection boxes.
  3. Collect donations.
  4. Fill out the gift form and submit it with your club’s donations.
  5. Celebrate! You’re helping save moms and babies.

Once you’ve collected all of your donations, send a check or money order (made payable to the Kiwanis International Foundation) and your completed gift form to:

      The Eliminate Project: Campaign Office
      Kiwanis International Foundation
      3636 Woodview Trace
      Indianapolis, IN 46268 USA
      ATTN: Trick-or-Treat

Be sure to write your club name or club number on the memo line of the check.

It’s important to send your check directly to the Kiwanis International Foundation so they can keep track of all funds raised by Kiwanis-family clubs. Together, Kiwanis Service Leadership Programs plan to raise US$7 million of the total US$110 million Kiwanis will raise by 2015 for The Eliminate Project.

This year, the Service Leadership Program goal is to beat last year’s Trick-or-Treat total and raise more than US$1 million. We need help from you and your club!


Clubs that raise and submit more than US$250 by December 31, 2013, will receive a special banner patch. So don’t forget to send in the funds you raise by the deadline!
